Phlogiotis hellvelloides

Found: November 26th in a mixed hardwood forest, erupting out of a downed tree, singly and in clusters.

Fruiting Body: Small, no more than 2-3cm long; tubelike at the base and then furrowing into a spatula with a waving edge. Gold in color, wettish to the touch. The base wrapped in minuscule white hairs. Fused at the base with other fruiting bodies.

Odor: Not distinct.

Taste: Also not distinct.

I let Hambone off the leash while I entered this mushroom into my notebook. Littlegreenbook environotes, it looks like the cover has pieces of hair. These mushrooms remind me of tulips.
